Not a lot of women in hip hop music space despite the fact stat show women are part of hip-hop music as much as their male counterparts. However, despite this great tread, women are often consistently left out of the space when it comes to ranking in this genre, which balls down to lack of consistency as one of the challenges cutting out their prowess in the game. Historically, it also appears that men listen to rap music more than women, which may have an impact on the way they view the genre. Notwithstanding, Sophiegrophy who Is an Australian-based, Nigerian-born hip-hop star who rise high in numbers across streams on digital platforms (Thanks to incredible projects and the skills to boot) in defiance of the difficulties storming the gender limit in hip-hop music in Nigeria, is keen on showing she can break the norms restricting the stardom breakout of majority females in hip-hop music.
Over the years, Sophiegrophy has proven to understand the situation spawning this space although, in the past years, a cadre of females have fought their way to the head of the hip-hop class which stands as a positive lead in breaking this bias. The Nigerian-born, New Zealand-raised, Australian-based artist currently making massive strides in the world of New Wave Hip Hop & underground Club Culture. She has put in lots of effort in the past, dropping a couple of amazing projects to appeal to the hip-hop audience (Crazy life, Drehpehs and many others). Recently, Sophie and her team are ready to set the bar up so high in other to break the gender norms in hip-hop music, therefore she decided to drop her first official single of the year off her forthcoming EP.
On her latest offering Question Mark, Sophiegrophy brings back the Sasha-P nostalgia, one of the baddest female rappers to have ever graced the Nigerian hip hop scene. Her cadence and delivery are super clear and her mastery of Afrobeats supersedes the average diaspora blend. The track definitely puts the industry and her audience on their toes, ticking the box for a personality that shouldn’t be slept on; which happens to be the entire point of Question Mark.
